Situated on Wareham Common approximately 700m from the centre of Wareham surrounded by water meadows and farm land. Our apartment occupies the ground floor of our Grade 2 listed water mill dating back to 1750. The River Piddle runs through the garden on one side and a stream on the other. The apartment is fresh, modern, newly decorated and sleeps 4. During peak season we have a 7 night minimum stay but out of season we are open to shorter breaks.
Ideal for 2 couples wanting a quiet break or a couple with children. A few rules to keep the apartment in top condition are:- No pets, No outdoor shoes to be worn in the apartment and no smoking.
Bed 1 has a king size bed, TV with Freesat and a modern en-suite shower room, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside cabinets. There are french doors to the garden.
Bed 2 has large twin beds, TV with Freesat, window to front and use of the modern bathroom with shower over bath. Wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside cabinet and dressing table.
Both bedrooms are provided with Luxurious quality Egyptian cotton linen.
The showers have very good water pressure from a combi boiler.
The lounge has 2 x leather reclining sofas, 1 electric and 1 manual. 52" wall mounted TV with Freesat & DVD player. Window to side, front and french door to garden. There is a quiet area to the front with another sofa and oak dresser. A room divider is full of DVD's to watch.
The kitchen is large and has a farmhouse type kitchen table which can seat 6. Good to gather around when a meal is being prepared. Large range cooker with easy clean induction hob, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge freezer and plenty of cupboards. It is in a modern ivory shaker style with Oak worktops and Belfast type sink. The french doors provide the access to the garden.
There is a very large garden to the rear. We have allotted a section of the formal garden immediately outside of the apartment for your use with garden table and chairs, sunshade and gas BBQ. The rest of the garden is a bit wilder and lightly wooded with the river running its length and a stream in the middle. Adventuring to the end of the garden finds some nice quiet spots but children should always be accompanied in the garden due to the proximity of the water. You can fish in the River Piddle in the garden or get a ticket from the Manor of Wareham for about £10 to fish a larger stretch of this river which contains Salmon & Sea Trout which i have caught up to 15lbs. Brown Trout, Pike, Chubb, Eels, Dace.
Location is ideal. Being far enough away from the town but only a 10 minute walk to the shops and many pubs and restaurants.
There is ample parking just outside the front door.

We stayed in the ground floor apartment in West Mill and were delighted with it. All the home comforts were catered for, it was tastefully furnished, very comfortable, had a well equipped kitchen and was located in a delightful position alongside the river. Having the garden was an added bonus and we made use of it for the odd breakfast and dinner (when not trying out all the pubs/restaurants in town) John was always available, if required, and the welcoming bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival was a nice touch. Wareham is ideally located to explore the Purbeck area of Dorset and when we did drag ourselves away from the picturesque and friendly town, we saw some magnificent countryside, riverside walks, Jurassic coastlines and sampled some fine food and ale.
Really glad you liked our place. Hope to see you again in the future. Model guests.
